Religious Life: Part of the Holiness of the Church


This is the description of Religious life according to Vatican II. In the course of the years, and because religious communities are made up of members who are weak, abuses do happen and the Holy Spirit's intervention is needed. This has been the story of the Church and its many reforms. This is how I see the developments which happened and which prompted the Vatican to intervene. I hope it bears fruit for Religious life in the United States. The link to the story is below.
